Independence, Inc. is seeking applications from community members to serve on our Board of Directors.
We have a nine member board, of which over half must be people with significant disabilities. Board members are elected to two year terms, and can serve a maxim of 6 years. The board meets quarterly, unless additional meetings are needed. Each Board member is also expected to serve on at least one sub-committee of the board.
The board is responsible for the overall direction of the organization.
The role of the Board is to serve as fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial and programmatic management policies, as well as making sure Independence, Inc. has resources to advance its mission.
If you are interested, please complete the attached application and return it to Scott Burlingame at firstname.lastname@example.org.
